Speech Title : Dining Etiquette  by  Madhura Bhat 

Toastmasters Project 4 speech – How to Say It 

Words are powerful. They convey your message and influence the audience and its perception of you. Word choice and arrangement need just as much attention as speech organization and purpose. Select clear, accurate, descriptive and short words that best communicate your ideas and arrange them effectively and correctly. Every word should add value, meaning, and punch to the speech. 


  • Select the right words and sentence structure to communicate your ideas clearly, accurately and vividly.
  • Use rhetorical devices to enhance and emphasize ideas.
  • Eliminate jargon and unnecessary words. Use correct grammar.
  • Time: 5 – 7 minutes

  1. You’ve a courage to speak about this topic based on your personal experience. Magical words to describe how you get ready and how your sister looks at the beginning of the speech. Good learning about the dining etiquette. Even I could relate to some of the blunders that I did during dining in the past. Overall, speech is well presented.

  2. I really loved the opening of the speech, it aroused curiosity. I like the usage of idioms like Feast or Famine, Hemming and Hawing to name a few.
    Appreciate the usage of descriptive words used appropriately, lessons learnt.
    Best of all is the sportive spirit of sharing your embarrassment in front of an audience without any hesitation and learning from your mistakes.

    Overall lovely speech with good take away!

  3. Very good and informative speech.
    Lot of hard work is put in inculcating rhetorical devices into the speech.
    Speech flows smoothly and soothing to hear

    Few suggestions following the above suggestions “he or she” can be replaced with “they”.
    “I want to share one hell of an experience” could be ” I would like to share an embarrassing , yet a great learning experience”

    adding pauses could improve the effectiveness of the speech
